We have a few users who wish to enter data into jira directly from a csv. Entering data manually is taking an awful lot of time as there are plenty of issues in the csv.
I know we have the importing via csv feature but that is restricted to jira admins.
What are the other options we have?
Maybe you can have them create issues using the rest api :
You could even write a small script to automatically create the correct json based on the information in the csv.
Yes, you got it wrong. If you use the csv importer you hav two posibilities. The first is to upload data with no ID. The result would be additional new issues. The second one you upload data with existing IDs (issue key) then those issues will be updated.
Importing issues through csv does not wipe out your existing issues. Importing a project requires you to remove all issues from the current project.
You can not give them only this access, only jira admins have this permission.
Can't you just do it once for them and let them add any new issues manual?
